First think about what your age range is, and then think about what kids that age might need immediately after arriving (before a shopping trip can happen). The main thing I would say every foster parent should have on hand is extra tooth brushes. That’s a definite for all ages. Combs and brushes. Baby shampoo. Deodorant. Hair detangler is a big one that foster parents often find they need immediately. If you plan to take babies or toddlers, pacifiers and a small pack of diapers in every other size are a good idea to have on hand. If you are open to taking emergency placements you might want to keep a stash of jammies, socks, and underwear in the drawer, although most clothing can be bought quickly, 2AM calls mean no time for shopping.
It’s natural to feel excited and anxious before a child arrives but try not to get too hung up on creating the perfect bedroom for them. Making a foster child’s bedroom a happy place is something that will happen as you get to know each other and develop the space together, why not start by asking them what you can do to make them feel at ease?
